Vanessa Brown Taylor

August 18, 1961 ~ January 15, 2021 (age 59)


Vanessa  Brown Taylor passed away January 15, 2021. 
She was a lifelong resident of New Smyrna Beach, and also spent many years with her family in Louisiana.  
Vanessa  was a sweet, kind-hearted person.  She had many friends and was loved by all.  She was an avid reader and loved the beach, fishing and her loyal rescue dog Ping.  Vanessa was an excellent cook, a skill she learned from her beloved grandmother, the late Idell Brown.  
She was preceded in death by her mother, Shellie Layport, her father, Arnold Brown, her brother, Vernon Brown, and her stepbrother, Randy  Weiss.  She is survived by her brother, Vaughn Brown, her sister, Becky Forbes, stepmother, Betty Brown, and two stepbrothers, Jeff Weiss and Kevin Weiss.  
We thank everyone who has reached out and shared stories of their wonderful times with Vanessa, and a special thank you to Jimmy, who loved and cared for her in her final days.  She will be greatly missed by her family and all those who knew and loved her.  
Due to COVID concerns, a private family service will be held at a later date.
